3 Trades the Suns can still make after trading Deandre Ayton: Chris Boucher
The Phoenix Suns have a very top-heavy team, but this deal helped them round out their depth. If they don’t want to sacrifice that for one elite bench player, then changing up their positional depth could be an intriguing idea.
Jusuf Nurkic is a fine big man, and Drew Eubanks and Chimeze Metu can provide some decent backup minutes, but adding Chris Boucher would really solidify the Suns’ frontcourt.
He can play minutes at the four and five, shoot the three-ball a bit, and be a solid shot-blocking presence for the Suns. His play would help them in a bunch of different areas.
Otto Porter Jr. is fresh off a season where he barely played due to an injury, but his veteran presence on this Suns team would be a huge help, especially if he can have a bounce-back season.
But perhaps most intriguingly, the trade would net the Suns a second-round pick. That may not seem like much, but for a Suns team devoid of trade assets, adding another pick would be huge.
For the Toronto Raptors, a team determined to keep pushing forward no matter how desperately they need to rebuild, this deal would provide some much-needed guard depth.
Grayson Allen would immediately step in as one of the best three-point shooters on the roster, and Jordan Goodwin would be an interesting young point guard prospect, helping them at a position they need help at more than anything.
